Mary was a wonderful host. She had had a hectic day and still greeted us (even though we were late) with such warmth. Her place is just as described and fit our needs perfectly. It is such a beautiful location with so much welcome space outside to sit and enjoy the quiet. Thank you for such a lovely stay!
Mary was a warm and welcoming host. The room was exactly as described. We used the hot tub each of the nights we were there, which made for a relaxing way to end the day. The entire back patio area is beautiful. The donkeys are friendly and sweet. Mary's house is convenient to both Ojai to the north and Ventura to the south. Would definitely stay again.
Also, I realized I left my jacket behind in the bedroom closet right before boarding my plane home, and Mary was kind enough to mail it back to me. Great host!
great host, great place, just all round tip top!
made to feel completely at home and was a shame to only spend the evening there, would have loved a few days to explore the area.
Accurate description. Great hot tub, easy to get to, comfortable beds and place, easy communication. Ojai is beautiful and this is a great, convenient spot to get to fun areas and good hiking/ biking.
The room was a bit more snug than I expected, but the patio and it's amenities more than made up for that. I loved how close by the bike trail was and that we had plenty of privacy.
We had a wonderful stay at Mary's. Mary is a great host and her home is beautiful. Chilling out in the hot, overlooking a little valley with lots of green was amazing. The area is great too. Thanks Mary!
Although we never met Mary, her son BJ took care of all of our needs. The home is located on a quiet street and filled with interesting art! Our room with adjoining deck was cozy, clean, private and comfortable. With little light pollution, we enjoyed our evening on the deck sipping wine and stargazing. Mary included plenty of area information which we used to plan our day - a ridge hike with spectacular views. We wish we could have spent more time in Mary's home!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Lovely accommodations. If you like "different", and eclectic, you should be happy. The Donkey's are adorable. We used the meditation room by having a massage therapist come over and set up her table in the room. Enjoy.
We loved staying at Mary's place. It was like a sanctuary in nature! Our room was ready and waiting for us, and was beautifully decorated, as was the entire place, inside and out. The huge private bathroom was beautiful with a great shower. Outside were beautiful views, the sweet donkeys, a wonderful hot tub where we could look sit and look out at the stars, and plenty of sitting areas. We loved how quiet and peaceful it was, and the beautiful ambience of the place.
This was a lovely home tucked away. The oak trees and starry skies were sublime while soaking in the tub.
Mary was perfect - she was available to chat but very unobtrusive.
The description was apt. No surprises.
The neighbors dog barked quite a bit - obviously not Mary's fault. It didn't spoil my visit but if you plan to spend the whole time at the house and barking bothers you it might be a problem.
Mary's place is in a beautiul and quiet neighborhood. Each of the two bedrooms are set at opposite ends of the house so your peace and privacy are inevitable. She is a cheerful person with a bright and creative mind. She will provide you with everything you need...she's always been a very good hostess. If you want to go to the beach in Ventura or to the galleries in Ojai. I think her place is about half way between both....maybe 10 minutes drive or so in either direction but there are plenty of stores close by in Oakview.
